Graphically Gifted

I am pleased to be joining my daughter-in-love, Jamiann at The Blackberry Vine for her meme, "Pretty Packages.  Thank you Jamiann for providing a forum where we can find inspiration from so many talented bloggers!

I'm also pleased to join  Pam's "Motivated Monday" party at Be Colorful  Check it out!


My creative capabilities took a huge leap the day that I bought my Cricut Expression.  It was so easy to make these party favor gift boxes for my al fresco "Black and White Luncheon."  I used the "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More" cartridge.  The card stock was taken from a DCWV "The Glitter Stack," from Michaels.  I tied the boxes with a variety of narrow black and white ribbons.  I was pleased that the boxes were the icing on the cake that was my "Black and White Luncheon."  For inquiring minds that might want to know:  The goblets are Waterford, "Simply Lime."  The dinner plate is Oxford Bone China by Lenox, "Filagree" and the luncheon plate is Haviland, "Ranson."  The sterling flatware is "Reed & Barton, "Grande Renaissance."

What a beautiful assortment of gift boxes on a glorious table. I'm sure I would have savoured every morsel of what you served!

"The WHOLE Package" is gorgeous... My favorite, well one of my favorites is "Your Goblets". I LOVE THEM and their tinge of green!!! How beautiful they bring out the grass in the background to the black&white on the tablescape. LOVE IT!!!
Hugs, Donna

LOVE the boxes! I have a cricut, but I didn't know about this cartridge. I'm pretty sure I can't live another year without owning it! Thanks for the heads up! I can't wait to see what you make next. :O)

This is a great image. You should share it at Between Naps on the Porch Tablescapes Thursday party but I would love it if you would link it up to my Motivated Monday party too at BeColorful.

What a beautiful table! I am impressed by you folks who can set such a gorgeous table, I just can't seem to get it to come together so nicely.

Beautiful tablescape! Love the green goblets!

Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my Autumn post, and thanks for the prayers, I really appreciate it! Wonderful healing prayer you said for me! PTL!

I was hesitant to post about my pain, etc., but it has led me to many people with similar pain. I have had so much encouragement from blogger friends.

Thanks again!

This is lovely, Cherry Kay...I love the black and white and the al fresco setting!

Thanks...

Thanks for linking up to the Pretty Packages Party! (I would probably feature you every time, but I'm trying very hard to not play favorites!!) Anyway, I did feature your beautiful table and clever boxes. Stop by and grab a button. (Will be working on the other buttons this week...not sure why it didn't work, but appreciate the heads up!) PS, Hal is brining home a little something Jack made for the two of you.
smiles!

Jami said...

Just wanted to clarify...Jack did not prepare a turkey for you to roast today. I know you may have been concerned when you read that Hal would be brining today. Instead, he will be BRINGING you a little something Jack created.
smiles!
